HPE Sets Roadmap for Digital India Inc. @ DEF16

Transforming to a hybrid infrastructure, protecting your digital enterprise, empowering the data-driven organization and enabling workplace productivity are the four pillars to digitally transform your business. This was the advice for CIOs from Neelam Dhawan, MD of HPE India on the sidelines of DEF2016 in Mumbai.

Comprehensive digital transformation strategies are emerging across all manner of industries driven by the availability of digital data, process automation and interconnection of value chains, coupled with the rise of smart machines and autonomous devices.

As CIOs now focus on building a digital foundation for their business, they are rethinking their entire IT infrastructure based on three key building blocks: the cloud, communications & collaboration, and the network. This was the essence of Dhawan’s message at a well-attended DEF2016 despite a rain-affected Mumbai Friday.

Dhawan used the examples of Asian Paints in India, the Auckland traffic in New Zealand and Dreamworks Studio work on Kung Fu Panda 3 to explain digitally transformed enterprises. Her advice: improving customer experience, better products and services (digital inside) and improved scaled up operations with IT transformation underneath will win the day for future digital-ready enterprises.

SomSatsangiHPE is advocating this digital transformation journey across verticals. The DEF2016 witnessed parallel sessions on 4 verticals—FSI, communications & media, manufacturing and logistics as well as government and public services. “Digital Transformation journey for each industry is different from other industry. That is the reason HPE has an industry specific approach to address challenges related to a future ready digital enterprise. We have specific solutions for BFSI, Manufacturing, Telecom and Govt. organizations helping them to take their digital journey to next level,” explains Som Satsangi, VP Sales, HPE India.

DEF2016 also witnessed a strong evangelization on IoT from Tom Bradicich, VP, Server Engineering, HPE, an acknowledged industry guru. According to him there are 7 principles on which IoT works. These include big analog data, perpetual connectivity, really real time, the spectrum of insight, immediacy versus depth, shift left and the next V (Visibility).

Security was another key discussion area at DEF2016. Paul Muller advised CIOs there is the need to build a compelling case for change, to paint a vision of the future and of the sorts of skills required both inside and outside of your organization. He advocated HPE Propel for CIOs– HPE Propel helps transition IT into a true services broker. End users interact with IT through the Systems of Engagement, from their mobile devices or desktops, which offers them single consumer experience. The backbone of HPE Propel is the open Service Exchange which brokers services from internal and external providers through plug-and-play integration of your existing and third party IT systems, on premise or cloud, ending the headaches of cobbling together of point solutions, hard coded point integrations and forklift replacements.
